On 14.11.2018, the HSI Workshop on “Further Development of Hyperspectral Imaging in Medicine” took place in Leipzig under the direction of Prof. Ines Gockel (head of the Clinic for Visceral-, Transplantation-, Thoracic- and Vascular Surgery at Leipzig University Hospital) and Dr. Claire Chalopin (ICCAS). More than 30 international participants from research, clinic and industry attended presentations on the clinical application of hyperspectral imaging for tissue examination. This non-invasive, contactless and easy-to-use technique is of great interest for both, clinic and industry.
The participant’s feedback was very positive, current collaborations were strengthened and new collaborations arose. The next meeting will follow in Heidelberg in the first quarter of 2019.
